Robert Pinsky,
Americans' Favorite Poems: An anthology of poems that were nominated for the Favorite Poem Project, the centerpiece of Pinsky's Poet Laureateship. Americans from all walks of life were invited to recommend their favorite poems, and thousands have responded with impassioned personal letters, some of which are excerpted here alongside the poems. This anthology reveals the rich, diverse presence of poetry in American life. (Norton)
